ought to be fired immediately. a sick joke that nobody ought to take seriously. paul ryan's budget is the same he put forth the last two years in a row. hasn't he learned anything? he would destroy medicare and medicaid, give the wealthy yet another tax break, put most of the burden on the poor and middle class and repeal obama care. this budget is going nowhere. it will be dead on arrival in the senate. it is pure fiscal mastur va tion. yet paul ryan gets credit for being a serious thinker. i will tell you this if paul ryan is a serious thinker i am an astronaut. take a look at the budget. doesn't add up. tomorrow, congressman keith ellison and peter welch, oh, boy. can't wait for that. come back and join us right here tomorrow. >> this is "the bill press show." [ ♪ theme ♪ ] >> stephanie: happy wednesday everybody. jacki schechner, you know i have so few things in my life. look how happy i am about my new coffee mug. >> what does it say? >> stephanie: it is green in time for st. patrick's day. >> ooh. does that mean there's no pinch ug? >> stephani
washington d.c. former vice-presidental nominee ron paul -- i'm sorry paul ryan, had a little ron paul on the brain there, paul ryan speaking about the need to get become to the party's conservative fiscal approach. these are live pictures right now of wayne lapierre of the national rifle association. there is also talk about smaller government and the need for fiscal conservatism. take a listen. >> we don't see the deaths as an excuse to cut with abandon, to shirk our obligations. we see it as an opportunity to change government, to make it leaner and more effective. these what conservatives stand for. that's who we are. jon: joining us is steven h*rb hayse with the "weekly standard" and a contribute. they said the future of the republican party took some shots at its past on thursday. more fireworks today, steven? >> yeah i think you will see some more fireworks as republicans and conservatives sort of work through what to do next after the results of the 2012 election. i thought what was interesting this morning, at least, is to contrast what you heard from paul ryan who is saying t
strong budget that balances in ten years. >> paul ryan's budget this week is coming under criticism for using fuzzy math repeals obama care but then uses the revenue that it would generate. he uses revenue from unspecified tax reform and doesn't identify single loophole in there that you would close. how is this honest accounting and how does this help lend legitimacy to the budget process that many americans feel has become kind of a farce? >> there are no budget gimmicks. in fact it's not our numbers that we're using. there's an independent referee that scores everybody's budget. they score our budget, the president's budget which doesn't exist yet but when he files it they will score that. in our budget they actually score the house budget to balance in ten years. and what paul does, a budget doesn't actually implement tax reform. it calls for tax reform. it calls on the various committees of jurisdiction to do certain things. we'll be calling on our natural resources and energy and commerce committee to increase energy production for example. that doesn't say exactly how to do i
budget committee paul ryan also expected to speak. yesterday we heard from party leaders that spoke about the future. they didn't really hold back any punches. look at some of that from yesterday, at cpac. >> the premise from the left is clear. they think economic growth depends on a huge, bloated federal government that just keeps growing. that's ridiculous. >> people who disagree on all sorts of things in the real world work together all the time on things they do agree on and there has to be a movement in america for people who believe in limited government, constitutional principles and a free enterprise system and that should be us. >> the gop of old has grown stale and moss-covered. >> our party is enqum pered by an inconsistent approach to freedom. the new gop will need to embrace liberty in both the economic and the personal sphere. [cheers and applause] martha: big response yesterday to rand paul and others. rick perry also got a very positive response from the crowd. we'll bring you highlights as they come in. we'll keep an eye on it. mitch mcconnell is speaking now. more coming
is undermining the ryan budget. we have worked with paul ryan and his budget committee. and many of the budget committee members are rfc members. >> can you describe the key differences between the rfc budget, and the ryan budget? is ine, the ryan budget 10 years. that was a big objective republicans have pushed for. i have a five-year-old and three-year-old, and i do not think it is asking too much to balance the budget before they graduate from high school. right now the way the cbo scores it, we will balance in four years. save all working to medicare from bankruptcy. it goes bust right now and 11 years. we support the concept, but we are implementing premium support for people aged 59 or younger. i do not think that is a big difference philosophical it, because at the end of the day where both saving it from bankruptcy. president obama does not save it from bankruptcy at all. obama care expedites the bankruptcy. i think what we're doing is building upon the foundation and a strong budget that balances in 10 years. >> it is coming under criticism for fuzzy math. he uses revenue from unspeci
. >>> in the republican's weekly address kongman paul ryan talked about his plan to balance the budget. ryan said that a balanced budget would make a difference, far beyond just crunching numbers. >> but the crucial question isn't how we balance the budget, it's why. the budget is a means to an end. we are not balancing the budget as an accounting exercise. we're not trying to simply make numbers add up. we're trying to improve people's lives. >> ryan's proposal includes a repeal of the obama health care plan and makes dramatic changes to medicare through those changes -- though those changes wouldn't affect current enrollees. >>> kongman ryan was overshadowed by senator rand paul at the c spak convention this weekend. rand paul won 25% of the vote. senator marco rubio was a strong second at 23%. rick santorum was next and then governor chris christie. and ryan is in sixth place. senator paul benefited from his 13-hour filibuster. questioning the potential use of drones on u.s. soil. his dad ron paul won the cpac straw poll in 2010 and 2011. >>> sarah palin she still knows how to fire up the cons
september. the budgets have gone out. paul ryan said here is mine. take a look. i balance it in ten years. chris van hollen on the democratic side said i have a better idea. in the house, we like to have our version and it will be $1.2 trillion in new taxes, 200 billion in stimulus. now, ladies and gentlemen, if you want a democratic house in 2014, that's what your country is going to look like. >> steve: later today the house of representatives is going to consider paul ryan's budget, plus they're going to consider five alternative budgets. one, patty murr i wouldn't he -- murray, the democrat senator from her state. the congressional black caucus', progressive caucus' budget, the republican study committee budget, which balances the budget in five years, not in ten years like paul ryan's. and chris van hollen's budget as well. meanwhile, the haggling continues in washington. the charm offensive of the president, he was being honest, wasn't he? he really was trying to charm the republicans. yet, brit hume was on last night with bret baier on his former program and said whether it worked,
to learn from his mistakes. also, romney's former running mate paul ryan talks about where america could be heading and it's just short of an economic apocalypse. low testosterone, you should know that axiron is here. the only underarm treatment for low t. that's right, the one you apply to the underarm. axiron is not for use in women or anyone younger than 18. axiron can transfer to others through direct contact. women, especially those who are or who may become pregnant, and children should avoid contact where axiron is applied as unexpected signs of puberty in children or changes in body hair or increased acne in women may occur. report these signs and symptoms to your doctor if they occur. tell your doctor about all medical conditions and medications. do not use if you have prostate or breast cancer. serious side effects could include increased risk of prostate cancer; worsening prostate symptoms; decreased sperm count; ankle, feet, or body swelling; enlarged or painful breasts; problems breathing while sleeping; and blood clots in the legs. common side effects include skin redness o
of the republican party's biggest stars are speaking. congressman paul ryan talked about the federal budget. and donald trump had a word or two about immigration. >> when it comes to immigration, you know that the 11 million illegals even if given the right to vote, you know, you're going to have to do what's right, but the fact is 11 million people will be voting democratic. >> historically we've paid a little less than one-fifth of our income in taxes to the federal government each year. but the federal government has spent a lot more. so our budget matches spending with income. >> again, mitt romney is to speak this hour. his first since losing the presidential race. we'll go there live as he starts talking. but first let's bring in our brianna keilar who is at the conference in maryland. so, brianna, this is romney's first speech. highly anticipated. >> reporter: highly anticipated his first major speech, fredricka, since his loss in november. we saw him give an interview recently to fox news channel. but as you can imagine it's very different i think sitting down one-on-one with someon
batted cleanup. thank you for that. [laughter] >> would have to say this for congressman paul ryan. unfortunately being wrong doesn't earn you any points when it comes to helping senior citizens across. the budget for 2014 this is bad for seniors as his budget last year and the year before that and the year before that. there's a reason you are. all rights budget is march madness when it comes to seniors. thankfully the american people have made it clear they reject the approach and the house republicans brazen attempt to balance the budget on the backs of seniors is unacceptable. this year's budget is in a path to prosperity for america's seniors. it's a path to poverty. the nine budget includes ill conceived unclear shift more medicare costs to seniors. once again, ryan medicare voucher schemes are short on detail spirit we don't know how much missing or so pay out of pocket, but here's so we do know. if it was his budget, ryan proposes to replace guarantee of health coverage at the voucher program beneficiaries can use to purchase private health insurance or join some version of
actually stop it. the house republicans are passing the paul ryan plan, and so then they'll go to conference and that where the heavy lifting will begin. >> shepard: the paul ripe plan has zero chance. >> it will pass the house and then they'll try to iron it out between the two plans. the paul ryan plan on its own would not be signed by president obama, would not pass the senate, burt it will pass the house. >> shepard: mike, thank you. meantime, something about our economy does not add up. we all know that. the latest government numbers show consumers spending grew at a strong pace. that's great because consumer spending counts for 70% of the total economic activity. here's the weird part. we're not seeing the expected comparable rise in our paychecks. we're spending more but no making more, and we're not spending more on credit cards. in fact the expert said the payroll tax hike would slow spending. it did not. so what is this? and rick suggests that more americans are taking advantage of the underground economy, earning and spending cash off the books to avoid taxes or othe
. and the other problem with patty murray's budge the, it never gets to balance. and paul ryan's budge net ten years, a fundamental difference with the kind of debt we as a nation continue to have. i was traveling around wyoming. we go to schools and students know we continue to borrow a lot of money every day just to stay ahead and a lot of the we're borrowing from china. >> paul ryan's budget balances in ten years because of the big chunk in the middle is killing obama care, which people have said i think recentasonably is going to happen. sure, it balances, but it's not going to happen. >> paul ryan's budget balances and spending increases every year under paul ryan's budget, it just doesn't increase as fast as the democrat's budget. the federal reserve came out with a report that talks about the impact of the health care law on the economy and on jobs. and it is hurting jobs. this is the federal reserve in their monthly report. talking about the bad impact of the health care law, because of the consequences within the law so businesses, due to the uncertainty, aren't hiring. when they do h
the paul ryan budget would do but making sure it survives for generations to come. putting revenues on the table that are fair and won't penalize the working people across america and making sure it is a balanced approach. i think what bob corker just said from his side is a basic principles that both parties can rally around. >> chris: and real specifically because i want to pin you down on this, are you saying you would accept structuralle chains, not doing away with medicare but structural changes and cuts to entitlements? >> let me tell you in 10-12 years medicare goes broke. that unanswered questions unanswered questions acceptable. the paul ryan voucher aapproach is destructive of medicare. there are ways to approach it to reduce the cost of medical care and still keep our promise to seniors across america. >> chris: part of the problem in the debate is that the parties seem to be disagreeing about the importance of dealing with our national debt. i want to play what president obama said this week and also what he said back as a candidate in 2008. take a look. >> we don't have
to earth. but the house budget chairman paul ryan pushes ahead with his plan to balance the nation's books with major spending cuts. he'll join us live this hour. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room. . >>> it may be president obama's first official visit to israel but all eyes right now are on syria. the president says he's trying to find out if the damascus regime has crossed a u.s. red line by using chemical weapons against syrians. >> we intend to investigate thoroughly exactly what happened. obviously, in syria right now you've got a war zone. you have information that's filtered out but we have to make sure that we know exactly what happened. we know that there are those in the syrian government who have expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necessary to protect themselves. i am deeply skeptical of any claim that in fact it was the opposition that used chemical weapons. once we establi the facts, i have made clear that the use of chemical weapons is a game changer. >> strong words from the president. let's go straight to cnn's john king. he's on the scene trav
paul ryan's budget plan comes up this week. hear a veryting to spirited debate both in the senate and house. we will have republicans and differenton very sides of which should be done. >> how does paul ryan's budget compared to the democratic proposal? cut spending a lot more. the's budget would reduce deficit by almost $6 trillion in 10 years. reduce ay budget would little under $2 trillion in 10 years. >> what other groups are offering their own budget plan docks water they likely to focus on? >> -- who will be issuing their own budget plans? budget will be similar to patty murray's budget in the senate. increases,ave tax but neither would balance the budget in 10 years. also the congressional black caucus and the congressional progressive caucus will be introducing budget. it's possible a ryan version could be introduced in the senate. >> what is likely to happen in the senate this week? >> it will be democrats making the case for the patty murray budget. convince someto democratic senators who may not support that budget. they will have to sell it to democratic senators as we
a rerun of "the golden girls." we got rand paul. we got marco rubio. we got paul ryan. and the other guys, they got hillary and joe biden. >> yikes. that's senate minority leader mitch mcconnell yesterday poking fun at the democrats, leading contender for 2016. the come, as you might imagine, ruffled feathers, even in his own statement kentucky's democratic party chairman wants mcconn toll apologize. an into the political playground we go. talk about turning an awkward tv moment into a moneymaker, senator marco rubio's political action committee is selling water bottles with his name on them at cpac this weekend. as you can see, they are charging $25 a bottle. if you remember, rubio made that memorable lung for his water bottle in his middle of the state of union rebuttal last month. >>> and it sounds like a reality show but actually the white house kicking off a new audio series called "beinged ed "beie a listen. >> a couple guys in their hunting shirts i'm serving a meal to, along with folks you see in the background. >> the white house says the idea is for people to know the story beh
a chance really to see firsthand the rolling out of what we call the ryan budget. paul ryan as the chairman of our budget committee once again leads, i believe, the intellectual and thought process on talking about the future that we should have in this country. certainly the budget is that primer, that guiding post, that opportunity for us to lay out a philosophy about what republicans stand for, and today the american people are having a chance to hear from our colleagues, the democrats. of course as you listen to our colleagues, our friends, the democrats talk, everything about a budget is all about if you're a republican, us harming the middle class, us ruining the country, headed in the wrong direction. that is because they have taken the simple approach to they will try and fund everything. they will try and fund hospitals. they will fund airports. they will fund schools. they will do all these amazing things. and the facts of the case are is that that process and that future does not work. paul ryan yesterday, before the rules committee, very carefully, argued the point that really i
, not eliminating medicare, as i'm afraid the paul ryan budget would do but making sure it will survive for generations to come and putting revenues on the table that are fair and will not penalize the working people across america and making sure it is a balanced approach. i think what bob corker said from his side is a basic set of principles, that both parties can rally around. >> chris: and, real specifically because i want to pin you done on this: are you saying you would accept structural changes -- as you say, not doing away with medicare but structural changes and cuts to entitlements. >> let me tell you what we are facing in ten, 12 years, medicare goes broke. that is unacceptable. we want to make sure that medicare is there for generations to come. and, that means making some reforms and some constructive changes. the paul ryan voucher approach is destructive of medicare. it will not survive. millions of americans will lose their benefits. but, there are ways to approach it. to reduce the cost of medical care, and still keep our promise to seniors across america. >> chris: par
, the house is due to vote on the paul ryan budget. that's gotten a whole lot of buzz. he made his final pitch tonight. >> we need to balance the budget. balancing the budget is necessary for a healthy economy, for creating jobs. for giving our kids a debt-free nation. that's why we do this. their budget, despite what they say, never ever balances. >> now, to be clear, the paul ryan budget nor the senate democrat budget will become the law of the land. they will both pass very different budgets, and it will be up to a conference committee to work out the differences, shep? >> shepard: mike emanuel on capitol hill. the war in iraq began 10 years ago this week. we have been catching up with some the marines who led the ground invasion. just a few days later, they were fighting in the middle of a sandstorm outside baghdad. a couple of weeks after that they had toppled saddam hussein. and, well, we got some pictures. they were hanging out in one of the bombed out palaces. it would be more than 8 years before the final u.s. troops left iraq for good. as many wondered why we were there in the first
at another high-profile republican. this morning paul ryan gave the republican weekly address and pushed his budget proposal explaining why he is so focused on balancing the budget. >> the budget is a means to an end. we are not balancing the budget as an accounting exercise. we're not trying to simply make numbers add up. we're trying to improve people's lives. >> so, andy, if paul ryan connecting a balanced budget to improving people's lives, do you think the gop senses it needs to do a better job of explaining why balancing the budget should matter to people? >> paul ryan obviously understand that point. he realizes as we just heard that connecting the budget, this is an issue that maybe the republican party can use to reach out to hispanic voters, to reach out to women voters, to reach out to those blocs that the party has had so much trouble with. the problem is the product paul ryan is offering is absolutely no different from the product that has been so unpopular in the past. so maybe they can put new wrapping on the report or a new message behind it. the nuts and bolts of it are real
. chu: $2,000, $2,000 is what you will lose if the republican paul ryan budget goes through. what does $2,000 mean to you? for a single mom, it could mean the difference between feeding her family or seeing her kids go hungry. for hardworking americans, it could mean the car payment or gas money or prescription drug money that you need to pay each and every month. but to the g.o.p. $2,000 is the amount they are taxing middle-class families in their quote-unquote new budget, the paul ryan bument. but not everybody has -- paul ryan budget. but not everybody has to pay more. the truth is in this budget if you're oil corporation corporation or taking jobs overseas or a yacht owner, you have nothing to fear with the g.o.p. budget. your lifestyle is totally secure. once again, working families will pay more so the rich can pay less. for the sake of middle-class americans, we must oppose the ryan budget. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from ohio seek recognition? >> i ask unanimous consent to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: without objec
ryan, the vice-presidential running mate, rand paul, marco rubio and a host of others and in addition to the newcomers who were eyeing the white house for 2016, folks like mitt romney and sarah palin who have run in the past who aren't necessarily planning on any kinds of runs, in the case of romney said they won't, but definitely want to share lessons learned with those who might as the conservative in cpac learn how to hold on to principles and in the last election haven't been looking at the g.o.p. >> harris: the answer to my question, is it too early? no, never too early. >> reporter: no, they're in the planning. >> harris: and what i got to say tonight, campaign carl, you tell mark lee, and tim scott spoke at cpac and they will go on the record with greta van susteren tonight at 10 p.m. eastern right here on the fox news channel. well, senator john mccain is looking back at the day he and more than 100 servicemen went free from a prisoner of war camp. he talks with fox news about that very moment. stay with us. ♪ just one bite opens a world of delight... ♪ ♪ a flavor parad
. today and tomorrow he has meetings with republicans. how's gop republican paul ryan has challenged the president to come up with a balanced spending plan. >> my goal is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance, my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work? and if we do that we are going to be bringing in more revenue. >> patty murray will unvail the democrats budget plan and the white house says president obama will release his budget the week of april 8th. also today president obama will meet with ceo's from major companies to get their input on how the government and private sector can best work together to improve cyber security. coming up why the director of national intelligence says cyber attacks now pose more of a threat to the u.s. than a terrorist attack. >>> time now 5:07. let's check in with sal. already we are following fog and crashes a busy morning. >> it is busy already. pam, welcome back. the traffic is moving along pretty well if you are driving in many areas. but it's foggy. i can show you the east shore freeway. if you look at
the election to minorities and women. there has been a lot of talk about that and running mate, paul ryan says it's really not helpful to talk but republicans should be doing to actually meeting people to court them. listen. >> we can't just talk about these communities. we have to talk about with them. we have to engage them because leaders, leaders don't just speak up. they listen too. >> reporter: ryan as the party's former vice president nominee. he insists he is not thinking about running in 2016 but he has tremendous amount of work to do. it will be a lost attention and with it a lot of scrutiny which could make it both a lot of attention and harder to run for office for the presidency. >> harris: we see the speaking continues. in a couple of hours. big headliner for tonight. >> reporter: jeb bush, former florida governor will be speaking tonight. he has for years said he is not the slightest bit interested in running for president. couple weeks ago, that all changed. he quite dramatically he is no longer saying no, but this is the 2013 conservative political action conference. all of th

criticism of his colleague congressman paul ryan, the budget proposal and balance in a decade hinges on the repeal of obamacare. >> we believe that the law will collapse under its own weight and people will be eager as the details unfold. point two, the same point could be made for the senate budget, dead on arrival in the house, a trillion dollar tax increase with even more spending. >> reporter: ryan is of course the top republican on the house budget committee. the top democrat, democrat chris van holland made the case against the ryan budget proposal paying particular attention to the theoretical repeal of obamacare. >> their budget is built on a hoax. on one hand they say they will be in ten years, and on the other hand repeal obamacare, if you repealed it today the budget would not be balance. >> and part of the so-called charm offensive, congressman ryan says if anything big is going to get done that charm offensive needs to be sin veer and last until summer. harris. >> harris: a long time to charm. peter doocy, thanks very much. good to see you. as we told you earlier, senat

: yes, hello, paul ryan just did a budget and he wants to cancel the affordable care act. also, my government doesn't want it. i'm guessing the congress and give the money for the affordable care act. >> okay, paul ryan's budget is being unveiled today. what do you say about this? >> well, his budget does assume the repeal of the affordable care act. i think it is sort of a pipe dream, given the political makeup of the country right now. i think it is aspirational. they would like that to be the case. republicans still think the forgo care act could collapse under its own weight. premiums will go up, people won't sign up, things like that. they think that there is no other choice and it could be a reality someday. >> at the kaiser family foundation's website they have a map on the exchanges and the decisions made by each of the states. paul ryan, a republican is unveiling his budget to the federal exchange program. >> exactly. although governor walker, very interestingly, he unveiled a plan. the other mechanism is medicaid expansion. i don't want to expand medicaid through the affo
and the party of old. >> bret: we also heard from paul ryan today. take a listen. >> we don't hide behind our beliefs. we argue for them. a budget is a list of numbers. expression of thegones philosophy. our budget draws a sharp contrast with the left. it says to the people unmistakable terms, they are the party of shared hardship. we are the party of equal opportunity. >> bret: charles? >> i think it shows how strong a bench we have and how good the prospects are in the future. i'm less cynical than my compadres here. i thought romney gave gracious speech. the heartening element is the way a young crowd, quite conservative crowd cheered and greeted him with equal grace. which was nice. usually you pick a loser to -- kek loser to the curb in politics. that was the opposite. >> bret: portman announcement, john, significant? >> it's significant. i'm sympathetic to the position on this. the politics are problematic because the idea he only changes the position when it affected him with his own son. that will have repercussions. >> bret: chuck, north korea, beefing um securit up security,e defens
-term budget deficit and the house is poised to take up congressman paul ryan's budget tomorrow. joining me right now republican congresswoman marsha blackburn of tennessee. i want to start by showing everybody the new poll numbers. both sides have taken a hit when it comes to the budget hit. 67% disapprove of the way the president has dealt with the budget. 79% disapprove of the republicans on this. people at home think it's just absolutely ridiculous. will those numbers push both sides to find a compromise before it's too late, before the numbers continue to go down any further? >> you. thomas, i think you're right. they do want to see a resolution to this and what they're wanting to see a resolution to first is the out of control spending. get this out of control spending under control. and that's what we hear from both sides of the aisle, from our constituents, regardless of whether they're democrat, independent, republican, libertarian, you name it. they say, washington spends too much. you don't have a revenue problem. you have a spending problem. get it all under control. that is wha
are competing with paul ryan or rand paul or marco rubio on the main stage. it happens and we are doing a great job with it host: on twitter they said, unless about-face on an birth control, abortion, immigration and a marriage, they are done. do you agree? have athe republicans majority in the state levees -- legislative chambers in the country. the republicans did not run a good presidential race. what i do find true in the statement he made is that it is not about issues. it is about performance. ofublicans have lost five the last six presidential elections because we have not adjusted to be changing demographics of our country. it is not a matter of changing who we are or what we stand for. it is a matter of reaching out to all americans, what ronald reagan used to do. the asiannot going to american community, the african- american community -- i am proud to be the first hispanic american charity american conservative union has ever had. is first rule of engagement to engage. i do not think we have done that well. the reason why we are losing ground with the growing demographics of america
released by the committee chairman, congressman paul ryan. this is a live picture of congressman ryan out of washington, d.c. his plan includes spending cuts, lower taxes and eliminating president obama's healthcare law. jamie dupree joinses us via skype from -- joins us via skype from washington, d.c. the senate is due to release the budget today and i'm guessing it's different from ryan's. >> reporter: yes, you are right. the gop envisions a balanced budget in ten years. democrats are not talking about that. there are no new taxes raised in the republican plan. one thing that's interesting is this -- the gop would do away with the obama health reforms and repeal the law. they would save about 35% of the budget savings in that budget plan but not mentioned at all are any of the tax increases that were put in the obama health law in order to fund a lot of those programs. that wasn't even mentioned in the gop plan. that's why i hesitate to call this that, even though everybody labels it a budget. a lot of the banks are not filled in. we expect the same thing from democrats when their plan

chairman paul ryan. most of that distinction was highlighted in the clip you just played. while both sides sort of maintain lower deficit numbers, they go about it in a different way. the democrats tried to vote raise new revenue. they struck the finance committee to come up with almost $1 trillion in tax reform package versus all the cuts on the spending side of the ledger on the house republican plan. so that is the debate we have been having for years and it is the debate we will keep having as these two budgets look to move to the course of their respective chambers next week. host: niels, what is new about what democrats are proposing? have we seen a lot of this comes from democrats before? guest: we're not talking about anything that is particularly novel. because we have not seen the senate to go through the formal process of drafting a budget resolution, holding a budget markup, and go to the floor with a budget resolution and pass a budget resolution in several years now, it is sort of putting pen to paper in a different way than we have seen the senate democrats do it lately. a l
the here and now. paul ryan just released his budget. do you support it? >> i do support paul ryan's budget. it is a comprehensive plan to address the growing unfunded liabilities of the entitlement programs at the federal level. so that we can save the safety net for those who need it. and that we can bring the budget into balance and grow the economy. that's the essence of what the plan is about. >> mr. leader, in order to achieve that balance, to balance the budget, it also assumes that $600 billion in tax increases that you opposed in january. >> well, i mean, unfortunately, we have, in fact, after the last election, a situation where the status quo of the president there, the democratic controlled senate and the republican house, that those tax increases were something that the president supported. but i can tell you, if you look at the alternative vision coming out of the senate, there really is a two separate visions of the way this country ought to go. on the one hand, we have the house budget that is -- promotes a balance within ten years, that can grow our economy. and that you ca
will mark up paul ryan's but more morning. you can see live coverage on our companion network. members are expected to work on the proposal into the evening. president obama returns to capitol hill to meet with house republicans tomorrow and senate republicans on thursday. friday, he travels to the argon national laboratory near chicago to talk about energy and climate change. it is staffed by more than 1000 scientists and engineers. >> chuck schumer says he is optimistic about coming up with a bipartisan bill expanding the background check system for gun purchases. he spoke as the senate judiciary committee passed a different version of a background checks bill. it involves legislation on school safety. this is 40 minutes. >> i'm glad to see we have a number of senators here. we can get started. i appreciate those who come in here because we have -- we can continue the committee meeting we had last week. i look forward to our concluding our committee consideration of these important items. last thursday, we had a bipartisan vote for the soft illegal trafficking firearms act as 54. som
, madam chair. the president hasn't even proposed this. the house budget chairman, paul ryan has been able to create a budget blueprint. i presume that the majority has stated it will soon give us a blueprint. it is quite remarkable that the president has yet to submit a budget even though the law requires that by february 4. the facts are that during the past four years, the federal debt has increased in the debt will increase by another $9 trillion over the next 10 years. protein levels where economists agree that it will cause of slower economic growth we never get a definition for fairness and balance. sadly there is no economic growth will only come through a bigger and more intrusive government. the problem is that raising taxes only creates problems in the case of small business, for 70% where new jobs are created. the higher taxes are robbing the unemployed. the government it supports does not create economic growth or self-sustaining jobs. press reports indicate that the budget resolution will be presented by the budget chair will increase taxes by $1 billion. and it will come fro
.c. by republican leaders. i might be bias but i applaud the clear and convincing voice of my friend paul ryan. [applause] now, if i were to offer advice to any person who was or became the president of the united states it would be this, do whatever you can to keep america strong, to keep america prosperous and free, and the most powerful nation on earth. it is no secret that the last century was an american century. it is no secret that over the span of the coming century that is not written in the stars. america's position is not guaranteed. the consequence, if america were to be surpassed by another nation would be devastating. why do i say that? the other leading contenders for world leadership, china, russia, not one of them excepts freedom as we understand it. only america and american strength can preserve freedom for us, the rest of the world, and the people we love. [applause] freedom depends on america and american leadership depends on a military so strong, so superior that no one would think to engage it. our military strength depends on an economy so strong that it can support th
chairman paul ryan. he says that it will balance the budget in 10 years without raising taxes by reducing spending over the next decade by 5.7 trillion. it would also repeal president obama's health care law and make changes to thed to and medicare. this portion of the markup is 2-1/2 hours. . under the structure we have developed we will begin by having presentations on the budget in our control by the majority and hour controlled by the minority i will make an opening statement and then mr. valholen will also make an opening statement. any other members may enter statements into the record. the remaining time left and then the minority will use the remaining time left in its hour. mr. valholen's time and my time will come out of our hour. after the presentations we will have a staff walk through which means members can ask questions they have. after the staff walk thru, we will proceed to the amendments in a structure that i have worked out with the ranking member the structure that we have had standing tradition of. i will describe that when we get to that point. we will do tier 1, 12,
republicans sit down with paul ryan to talk budget. the senator john barrasso joins us next and here's a check on the forecast. bill? >> no comment from you? you sed it up. good morning, everyone. snow has been falling in areas of new england and now we are getting a break especially from about massachusetts, connecticut and rhode island southward. the roads are improving. we are mostly confined to heavy snow and northwards. we are fill it in in vermont and new hampshire. it's cold newscast boston area. we will begin to end from here. airport delays not too bad. philadelphia 45 and that's about it. a lot of places were canceled. almost worse than the snow this morning are the wind chills here from further to the minneapolis area. indianapolis shouldn't have a wind chill of 12 this time of year. this is warm and beautiful mid-to late march and they have brutal wind chills. the cold is from the northern half of the country to canada and that continued to 32 in chicago. orlando and miami. a i lot of people ask me when will this end and warm up? this takes us through the next seven days. even this
, the house starts a debate on paul ryan's budget. they will be debating back and voting on amendments. we told you yesterday, it is official today, that the assault weapons ban will not be part of a larger gun control senate package. the senate majority leader told it did notesterday, have enough votes read host: dianne feinstein said yesterday, she tried her best but it was not good enough. the washington post has this headline -- host: this is the front page of the daily news, shame on the united states -- host: on president obama's visit you can seebank -- posters that palestinians were holding up with the words, no hope on them. following up yesterday on the south carolina first district race, here is the state newspaper this morning. the former governor is in a runoff with other room -- republicans -- host: also, this morning, the politico front page -- even political viewers might be shocked -- also, the paper is noting that the senate is moving forward for a continued resolution to fund the government for six months. john in illinois, what are your thoughts on the 10th anniversary
this was the centerpiece of their campaign for the last six months. this was part of what our friend, paul ryan and governor romney, preached from coast to coast, advertised, campaigned, and all of a sudden it was rejected by the american public overwhelmingly. the president was comfortably re-elected and more democratic senators added who support this effort in the house of representatives, not only did we gain seats, but more than a million voters more voted for democrats than republicans. so you would think that this would be put to rest, but it is important for people to know that it is still a viable option as far as our republican friends are concerned. and it's unfortunate, because we are making some progress in reforming the health care system, not by turning our back on medicare, not by transferring the risk and responsibility to seniors and most vulnerable, but by making it more efficient, by taking some of the experiments that we have done in my home state of oregon, and as you well know, there are some health care systems in california that have already found ways to reward value ov
